Do you wonder how people sit down at a piano and appear to play by “feel” or “by ear”? Do you imagine that such people are gifted, certainly more talented than you or perhaps born to it?
You will be surprised to learn that these people probably learned the open position piano chord method. They probably even taught themselves by improvising using this method.
The open position piano chord method is the fastest way to learn how to make contemporary and sophisticated piano music, and most piano teachers agree.
Start in the Key of C. Take the six-note chord and move it up progressively through C Major 7, then D Minor 7, E Minor 7, F Major 7, G7, and A Minor 7and finally, B Half Diminished.
How often have you watched musicians talk to each other in these code like terms? Imagine having it all demystified in one session! Not “Every. Good. Boy. Deserves. Fruit.”, the famous note-by-note treble clef mnemonic that I learned playing piano, but whole gorgeous sounding chords of piano like Paul McCartney discovered for himself !
Once you become familiar with C Major it’s easy to generalise to the other scales: D, G, etc. Improvise and play. You can’t break anything but you can break through to a real and deserved sense of musicianship as you go into the zone of creativity.
Of course, even something simple is easier again if you practice and if you have someone show you what to do.

“Robin: I received the CD Rom and have been following the course for over a month now. I just wanted to write and tell you that your course exceeded my expectations. I have purchased home piano courses in the past, but could never seen to make any real progress. The lessons were either too complicated right from the start that I got frustrated and quit or there was too much theory and not enough actual playing music.
Then, I decided to give your course a try. Is it possible to have fun while practicing the piano. The answer in this case is yes. The video’s are easy to follow and each lesson presents something new, but builds on the previous skills you have learned. You still have to practice, but the practice is fun. The lessons allow you to play and hear recognizable rhythms, while at the same time you are learning chords and music theory: a great way to learn! I actually look forward to practice every day.”

“Hi Robin, just a quick note, this is david from barnegat, new jersey i started your course about three months ago, i am on book 3 and still think the course is just great. books 1 and 2 were just the best, i really look forward to sitting down at the piano now, and just have fun the licks and songs you use are just what i am looking for. i am 59 years young and grew up with all those tunes. keep up the great work and i will stay in touch, thanks again, david.

Hey Robin we have spoke a while back about your course..I started on book one and it is awesome.. I play acoustic guitar and sing but i am so excited to play piano now, and it so easy to create chord progressions with your method that the second day already im playing let it be progression…what is your suggestion should i just follow each page and dont move on till i master each page? Thanks..it was a blessing finding you, music is my life.

Robin, I am halfway through the first book. Its a brilliant course which suits the way I wanted to learn perfectly. I will certainly recommend it. I am learning lots and having fun in the process.
“Of the courses I’ve seen online on how to play piano I’m sure this is one of the best ones.”
